The Personalized Newspaper

Image source

Matt Schlicht with some helpful concepts along with this:

The Personalized Newspaper must instantly deliver a meaningfully personalized experience upon sign up and continue to evolve with the user’s interests with no manual input required from the user - behavioral/interest data must be passively collected from multiple sources not just limited to user interactions with the newspaper. The consumption and discovery process includes data from friends, trusted topic curators, the general reaction of the entire audience, and most importantly a small amount of content that falls outside of these filters - allowing the user to discover new content and topics they may not have known about.

The Future of (un)Consumption

A new wave of Collaborative Consumption is making sense across the world:

"While it may continue to be necessary to buy certain things ‘new,'" Anderson said, "Collaborative Consumption has the potential to be an equal counterpart to other more traditional forms of consumption."

Anderson added that businesses that stick doggedly to the practices of wasteful consumption are likely to go the way of Blockbuster and Borders.

"Some industries might be slower than others in recognizing the importance of a Collaborative Consumption model," Anderson conceded. "[But] those who don’t catch up will certainly be left behind the newcomers."

What is a Blog?

Image source

Interpreted from the I&B Ministry, supplement to India’s Information Technology Amendment Act 2008:

This is tricky: blogs do two things - they publish content, and have user generated content in the form of comments. at one level, they are a publisher, and at another, an intermediary. The guidelines however, clearly define a blogger only as a user, and that a blog is A"a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video." This is generic, and could mean any online publication, including ours, and online publishers would also come under the ambit of the definition of the term 'users'.

How to Get Acquired After Launching

About.me is an online profile aggregator that attempts to be the go to spot for finding peoples online identities. For about 3 and a half months About.me was in private beta, and you had to have an invitation to sign up. Four days after About.me opened up to the public, they were acquired by AOL. it surprised a lot of people to hear that AOL was going to acquire the four month old company for several million dollars. Reports on the deal varied from $1.3m to $10m.

A lot of tech pundits were caught off guard with the acquisition, but I believe there are three key reasons why About.me was able to succeed so quickly.

The Interdependent Web

Image source

Yahoo, for example, will show you one of a possible 38,000 home pages, depending on who Yahoo believes you to be. Yahoo Mail (or any other mail, for that matter), is an utterly dependent service: it will only show youAyour mail (we hope). Facebook, of course, creates an entirely different experience for you than it does for me, because what Facebook shows us depends on who Facebook thinks we are. And search, in general, is a dependent service - what you see as results depends both on what you input as a query, as well as who the search service believes you are (personalized search).

And while I believe this idea of a dependent service being defined as "one that changes depending on its profile of you" is important, this isn’t the only feature that distinguishes Independent sites from Dependent ones.

Another way to understand the distinction is that Dependent sites tend to be ones we, well, depend on for some basic service in our lives. You might depend on Yahoo or Google for mail. We depend on Facebook for our social graph, and Twitter for our "interest graph." Of course we depend on Google (or Bing) for search. And I’m starting to depend on StumbleUpon to surface sites I might like.

In fact, most of us "depend" on Dependent-web services to discoverAindependent sites - a fact we may as well call "the interdependence of the independent and dependent web."

SEO for Startups

Image source

Don't Let Search Dominate Your Traffic Sources. If Google sends 90% of your traffic, your business has real danger associated with it. Why aren't people coming directly to your site, being passed links in email, getting Tweets and Facebook mentions that send traffic? Why is no one blogging about you, writing about you in the press, commenting in forums with links to your content? These "natural" signs tell a story of a real business providing real value. The 90-95% Google trafficked site says something strange is going on, and Google themselves are likely to figure that out sooner or later.
